Wales Evangelical School of Theology

From its formation in 1985, the Evangelical Theological College of Wales soon established a reputation for providing sound theological training for Christian ministry.  Today, numerous former students of many nationalities are engaged in frontline gospel work around the world.

The change of name to Wales Evangelical School of Theology in 2007 in no way signalled a break with our past but, rather, a renewed vision for our future. We are acutely aware of the potentially disastrous effects of ‘equipment failure’ in the spiritual field of battle.  These few points indicate what WEST has to offer serious Christian warriors – those God is calling and gifting to become true leaders in tomorrow’s Church.  Scholarships worth £2,000 per annum are now available for those undertaking degree-level initial training for ministry.

Willow Creek Events

The Willow Creek Association is driven by the belief that there is nothing like the local church when the local church is working right, so please join with us as we seek to provide everyone involved with tools and training in the task.  Anchored in a commitment to excellence and innovation, WCA events offer training, inspiration, and networking opportunities to church leaders from around the world.

Ministry School

Ministry School is a modular course running in the Pontypool area to train and equip existing and future leaders for local church ministry and leadership.  This is the prototype of a model that could be repeated in other localities in order to train local leaders ‘on site and on the job’.

Network Ministry Training Course

'Getting it right and getting it across' are the two main objectives of the Network Ministry Training Course at Highfields Church, Cardiff.  Network is designed to help you get better equipped for ministry in your church and mission in your community.  Network is open to men and women from any denomination who wish to be better equipped for ministry in their local church.  Previous students include church lay-assistants, lay leaders, para-church workers, people moving towards full-time Christian ministry, ministry leaders with a regular teaching role in their church and people wanting to use their retirement for ministry.  Since the first course in 2004, more than 100 students from more than 30 churches across South Wales and the West have benefitted from Network over the last six years.

The Network courses are taught through lectures, discussion groups and interactive classes. Some preparation is necessary most weeks but there are no formal written assessments.

Porterbrook Network

Porterbrook Cardiff is all about equipping everyday Christians to embrace everyday life with Gospel purpose, for Jesus Christ.  The course is designed for disciples of Jesus Christ, who are already committed to a local church and who want to learn more about how to live for him.  The course is split into four streams: character, bible & doctrine, church and world (how to reach it!).

There will be many small groups spread across South Wales who learn together.  All of the small groups study the same material each week and then join together regularly and all together for a weekend at the end of each term.  There is an application process that each person has to undergo that allows Porterbrook to contact each individual's local church leader to make sure they are supportive of the person getting involved in this training.  Porterbrook Cardiff seeks to serve the local church of Jesus Christ.  This is not an alternative to church life. Porterbrook is similar to Bible College, but without the rigid learning timetables or expense.
